Really decent DIPA. Oft times, the local DIPA efforts lag behind the more well-known west coast big boys, but this stands up to the best.

Can, brought back from DC by Lalitha. Nice amber colour, white foam, vanished a bit quick. Pretty good DIPA this, nice malt balance and big tropical citrus hop with a little pine. Bitterness obviously high but not too much for the malt. Drinks very easily for abv. Good stuff.

Pours hazy darker orange with a small white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, grass and earthy. Taste is moderate bitterness throughout. Good carbonation, crisp dry finish with some lingering bitters.

Fresh cans from the brewery. Pours dark orange with medium head disappearing fast. Aroma: incredibly fresh aroma of ripe tropical fruit, a nice malt touch. Taste: very fresh and well balanced mix of tropical fruit, some pine, nice malt body, a touch of biscuits. ABV is very well hidden. This is a dangerously drinkable imperial IPA and definitely one of my favorites.

12 oz. can from nimbleprop - thanks again! Pours a clear golden orange until the last ounce of the can comes out, dumping a ton of yeast floaters into the glass. Small white head, settling into an uneven ring and spotty film, leaving streaks and spots of lace in the glass. The sweet malt backbone is the first thing that’s apparent here, with toast, honey, caramel, pine resin, citrus, tea, and florals. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, bitter, resinous mouthfeel. Not bad, but I want to try it again super fresh.

12 oz.can, courtesy of DCLawyer. Thank You Sir. Poured a lovely blood orange, slightly hazed, with a 1/4" ecru head that retreated rather quickly. Not much in the way of lace. Nice, dank, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is a bit more malty than the aroma would suggest. Semi sweet, but still enough hop bitterness so you don’t forget you’re drinking a Dipa. Well balanced. Alcohol is subtle. Body is to the full side with a lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice!
